Grocery delivery produce
By Francine Kopun. 

Two of Canada’s largest retailers said Wednesday they are launching and expanding grocery home delivery, but using quite different models and price points.

Loblaw Companies Limited announced a partnership with Instacart to provide a premium service, delivering groceries in as little as an hour, and at a premium price.

The service, launching in Toronto Dec. 6, will charge a delivery fee, plus a service fee of 7.5 per cent of the order. The delivery fees will start at $3.99 and will vary depending on the size of the order and the delivery time selected.

Shoppers will be able to buy online from Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore and T&T stores.
